It is happening to more people than we think

Thank you for your words ! I can''t believe how much better I feel now! 12 years! I have hope, then.I now feel more encouraged to continue in the path- but it is still confusing for the children sometimes.Example example example... But also makes me more appreciative of the things he does do.
I will not give up. And I will thank God even more for the opportunity to improve.
I am sure God has good plans.

husband and wife are committed Jews going in different directions of observance

My husband and I are Sabbath observing, committed Jews. (orthodox if you need a label). Our children go to Yeshiva or Jewish day schools. We live in a "modern orthodox" community and our children are in excellent schools. We have been in this town for 3 years. We made the decision to move here together. Now my husband wants to be part of a different type of Jewish community. More "black hattish, women totally covered at all time etc." He wants us to move to another town. I do not want to move for many reasons, much having to do with the upheaval for my children. They would have to change schools and leave their friends that we took 3 years developing and nurturing. My husband is trying to force this change on the family. The house doesn't win in this situation it has become a stressful and insecure place. Gee, I wonder how Hashem is going to take care of this.
